Launch of largest TBM in Switzerland


The official TBM launch ceremony took place in February 2016 and marked the start of the construction of the 3.2 km long Belchen rehabi­li­tation tunnel. ILF Consulting Engineers has been entrusted with the construction super­vision of the tunnel and, together with partners, also with its design.

With a diameter of 14 m, a length of 75 m and a weight of 2,000 tons, the TBM is currently the largest of its kind in Switz­erland. In the next one and half years, the TBM will advance through geolo­gi­cally demanding zones of the Swiss Jura mountain range and will be driven through the mountain at distance of 40–116 m to the existing tunnel system and parallel to it. Subse­quently the final lining is also to be constructed.

ILF Consulting Engineers collects Green Points by travelling by rail


To further raise peopleai??i??s awareness of how they can help the environment by switching to travelling by rail, the Austrian Federal Railways (Ai??BB) have recently initiated the environ­mental programme Ai??STERREICH BLA?HT AUF (AUSTRIA IS BLOSSOMING). In the framework of this initiative, for every kilometer travelled by rail the Ai??BB offers ai???Green Pointsai??? that can be collected and used to promote specific environ­mental projects.

By travelling by rail when on business trips ILF has saved more than 15.25 tonnes in CO2 emissions in one year and was able to support the project ai???Paradies fA?r Amphibien (Paradise for amphibians)ai??? with the 97,734 Green Points that ILF employees collected from the Ai??BB.

As the sustainable protection of the environment is of utmost impor­tance for our company both with regard to the struc­tures and facilities designed by ILF and with regard to our daily project work, we appre­ciate this initiative and see it as a motivation to further increase our efforts in this respect.

TECON to study energy alternatives for generation of EOR Steam Flooding


TECON Engineering (a company of the ILF-Group) has been awarded a contract for the ai???Study for Energy Alter­na­tives for Steam Generation for EOR purpo­sesai??? by Mansarovar Energy, a Colombian O&G operator which is a JV between SINOPEC and ONGC Videsh.

Mansarovar operates the NARE Block in Middle Magdalena region, with a total production of 40 kbpd of heavy oil. For this operation Mansarovar injects steam in the oil reser­voirs- The steam is produced by several steam generators distri­buted throughout the whole block, and the fuel supply for these generators requires an in-depth imple­men­tation study. TECON will develop a compre­hensive study for all the indus­trial energy sources available in Colombia, including CST (Concen­trated Solar Thermal) which can provide suitable energy supply for the steam generators. In addition, using a renewable source of energy for EOR production is an unpar­al­leled pioneering technology to date.

ILF works on the longest railway tunnel in Georgia


The 63 km long Zestafoniai??i??Molitiai??i??Khashuri section (ai???Gorgesai??? section) is part of the main Georgian railway line across a mountainous alignment, having a gradient with very steep slopes and tight curves. This alignment imposes very low speeds and leads to various operation problems. For this reason the Georgian Railway LLC is moder­nizing the section with the target to increase capacity, reduce travel time and improve safety as well as railway operation.

ILF has been working as ownerai??i??s engineer for this project for many years and has recently been awarded additional services, including the tunnel safety concept, the tunnel venti­lation system and the electro-mecha­nical concept design for the T9 tunnel. With a length of 8.3 km the T9 tunnel will soon be the longest rail tunnel in Georgia and is an essential element of the above mentioned railway section. The tunnel will consist of two parallel tubes connected with cross passages at intervals of 300 m. In addition to that, ILF has been awarded a contract to prepare a new tender design for the 15 km section Kharagauli — Moliti. The project is planned to be completed and put into operation late 2019.
